I was going thru looking at some units trying to decide where my next campaign should be and I was looking at Armenia and Pontus mostly because even after playing a campaign there I have never dominated the Black Sea area, always get distracted with the larger empire to the south.
A few units seem very similar but the costs are very different. I hadn't paid attention before but for instance- Leukaspides and Pezoi for Pontus. Exact same stats except armour and defense skill 1 off each but same total defense. The recruitment costs and maintenance are really different however with the maintence being half for one over the other. What unit differences is this trying to indicate?
I will probably edit the unit files myself to try and substantiate the 2x maintenance cost by adding a bit more defense to make buying the more more expensive one justified. Just was curious if there was a reason for this or not initially... 1 more turn to produce for twice the cost doesn't seem like its enough reason.
Armenia has something almost the same but at least there one unit has an extra trait and 2 higher defense though everything else is the same.
